I do not quite understand the object of this Amendment, and I am not at all certain that if these words were inserted it would not defeat the very object of the Clause. I suggest that the cases which my hon. Friends have mentioned, with which I fully sympathise, are fully covered by the insertion of the words "bonâ fide occupation" in Committee. I am also advised that the words "residential occupation" have no meaning in law, or if they have a meaning, it is such that it might defeat the ends we have in view.
